The United Islands of Serrian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Super-National Politicontrol System with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.405 billion Serrianese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orokin. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serrianese economy, worth a remarkable 1,840 trillion Serris a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,410 Serris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployment is through the roof after the government enacted living wage laws, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serrian's national animal is the Shrike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mechatheism.

Serrian is ranked 166,330th in the world and 1st in The Timeless Void for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -21.17 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
